The university town here (Uni of Maine at Farmington) is experiencing a protest today. Some ladies wish to march down the street, topless, to protest the fact that it’s not generally accepted for us ladies to do such a thing (apart from beaches, etc). Here in Maine, it’s NOT illegal for girls to go topless in the street, and these girls want to promote this fact, and somehow make it popular for all girls to go topless if they wish.

I’m a bit doubtful about this: firstly, I have NO ISSUE WHATSOEVER with the topless concept; all power to ‘em. But surely by bringing it to attention it’ll cause narrow minded people to complain and try and MAKE it illegal? Plus it’s a western cultural thing that topless=kinda more private. I don’t actually appreciate topless MEN on the streets; in the park or the beach is another matter ;-), and same for the ladies, i think.

Is this a style statement, an attention-seeking statement, a women’s rights thing, or a western-culture-being-shy thing?! (of course, it’s all of the above). What does anyone else think? Basically this is going to attract all the local rednecks, and then these girls are gonna bitch that it was a gawk fest! I just think there may be a better way to make the point?

Would YOU do it?! (I wouldn’t, but I’ve been topless on the beach plenty, so I’m not against the topless idea, just not sure about the context….)

Won’t catch me doing that voluntarily, lol.
But some people are more comfortable doing it than I am so good for them C:
Only in designated areas though, please.
